Captain Oren Hayes (Pat O'Brien) of the Texas Rangers takes a break to visit his daughter (Kristin Harmon) in a neighboring town.
When he arrives he find's his daughter Hannah's husband Jeff (Ricky Nelson) is running for Mayor against a corrupt town boss, Nard Lundy (Edward Andrews).
Lundy has no intention of allowing the free election of the honest Jeff Rose, so he has his henchmen beat them up. Hayes then calls for the help of some his old buddies in the Rangers.

This made for TV movie was about what one would expect as far as the story went. What was amazing were the stars in it. Ricky Nelson, Jack Elam, Walter Brennan, Pat O'Brien, Chill Wills, Andy Devine and Gypsy Rose Lee. All of the acting was wonderful and you really pulled for the old men as they proved that experience and deception will defeat youth every time. I give it four stars
